Congratulations to Geography/LCB Ph.D. student, Giancarlo Sadoti for being awarded a Spring 2013 research fellowship from the Nevada NASA Space Grant Consortium. Giancarlo’s proposal focused on the complementary application of data from ground-based weather stations and thermal remote sensing to modeling the responses of breeding birds to temperatures encountered during and prior to egg-laying. Giancarlo proposed the use of a diverse set of historic and modern bird datasets collected by naturalists, biologists, and citizen scientists in these models. Giancarlo hopes his research can help managers and conservationists better prepare for the ways birds will response to the increased frequency and severity of anomalous temperatures expected under climate change.
